Hey everyone I tried ACV after reading it on this forum. I dilutted in 8oz water. It definitely burnt going down, and I actually got ACIDIC after. So as for me it did not work. My GERD is not the painful kind, I only get the bad taste and bad breath, slight hiatal hernia. I took the heinz brand.
 
Any comments or suggestions on why it did not work?

I think it's better to use it after you get over a real bad GERD episode. It should be used in place of vinegar in salads with a little olive oil.
I do think that once you can eat some good fat, like olive oil, and are over bad GERD - the best salad dressing is a little OLIVE OIL and a few drops of lemon.
Lemon is acidic but in the stomach it becomes ALKALINE, learned that from my research on Alkaline way of eating. Romans used it in ancient times for digestive purposes.

Thanks Danie. Is it safe to assume that taking in Lemon and vinegar helps in digestion but not in lessening acidity? I know that some GERD suferrers have that FULL feeling after eating which leads to heartburn, hence they will benefit from it.

Apple cider vinegar and lemons are definitely acidic. I think you have to get over your GERD SYMPTOMS before you use these two very beneficial acids (THEY DO LOWER STOMACH ACID, THEY ARE ALKALINE WHEN THEY REACH THE STOMACH) as salad dressings with olive oil, and use them sparingly even then.

Of course, they will burn going down your esophagus especially people that take the apple cider vinegar straight, it's an acid. You should at least dilute it in a glass of water.

It all comes back to ALKALINE, I just wish everyone would just start realizing that it's your only hope to curing your GERD symptoms and get off all these drugs.

If you decrease your stomach acid by not eating acid foods and help yourself with supplements you will eventually heal your esophagus.
Take Aloe Vera (refrigerate after opening) it sooths the esophagus and helps it heal.
Use DGL licorice TABLETS, dissolve in mouth 20 minutes before eating.

It's very strict though and you need alot of self-control.
At least try to not eat the most acidic foods like meat - eat tofu instead, very high in protein - mix it in with some vegetables like string beans, carrots, spinach, red beets, avocado.
I use Quinoa and Millet grains for more protein and mix them into my food.

My friend, who is a medical doctor, eats mostly like this. She is a vegetarian and has always relied on tofu, quinoa and millet as her proteins.
Hope this helps.

You also have to always eat very SMALL MEALS and eat at least 4 HRS BEFORE BEDTIME.

I tried Braggs Apple Cider vinegar and it made me feel worse.....yuck. I tired it one time when I was not having any symptoms, and then another time when I WAS having symptoms. Same result. I will not be using this again.
